Remarks & Notes 
Through The Fields Of Bakersfield. On the scorching hot afternoon of July 23, 2020, Amtrak/Amtrak California Train 719 is seen underway on the 6 hour northbound run to Oakland, California. CDTX 2010 (F59PHI, EMD, 8/2001) leads a typical consist of a Viewliner II baggage car, an ex-New Jersey Transit Caltrans Comet IB and 4 bi-level California Cars (Morrison–Knudsen/Amerail, rebuilt by Alstom) through a fairly desolate looking area that is just outside of the downtown Bakersfield, California. The single level cars are present only for axle-count purposes, a requirement on some passenger routes to maintain speed while still activating all of the necessary railroad safety devices with its presence.
